Wow! Apparently Dennis Dodd and Lance Briggs think they get to choose who Aaron Rodgers roots for in the NCAA tournament. Well, I disagree. And I have a few things to say about Aaron’s attendance at recent Badgers games. I love that Aaron has supported and even made friends with young Badger players who reside in Aaron Rodgers’s state of residence. Here are some Twitter snapshots that illustrate just how presumptuous some people can be.
After the Arizona game, Aaron Rodgers was allowed to go and congratulate the Wisconsin Badgers as they cut the nets while the press was held back. Dennis Dodd, in particular, took issue:
Why should Aaron Rodgers be doing interviews in this setting? Dodd is obviously just upset at being left out…boo hoo! And he then resorts to threats…
Wow…thank you for your guarantee Dodd…obiously you are the Prime Mover of the NCAA and USBWAA…a juggernaught, plain and simple. Oh, wait…here is what Aaron Rodgers had to say:
Oh yeah…and Lance Briggs had to chime in too. It is always good to get the opinion of someone who isn’t even going to be invited back to his NFC North basement team to comment on the NFL MVP:
Well, I am going to make this simple. I have three things to say about this issue (it shouldn’t be an issue but these people are trying to make it one).
1. Aaron Rodgers can back whatever team he wants. This is AMERICA and Aaron is a resident of Wisconsin and is backing his friends and the Badgers. I know that not every Packers fan is a Wisconsin Badgers fan…but that is fine too. We all back our college teams and I think that is great. But Wisconsin residents and Badger fans cannot help but be excited that Aaron has stood up for his friends on the Wisconsin team. That is not wrong either…any more than it is wrong that Aaron is rooting for the Badgers.
2. Dennis Dodd: When you are a Super Bowl champ, you can complain about somebody upstaging you and getting access to the team before you do. Until then…shut up!
3. Lance Briggs: Comment when you are again relevant, which is…NEVER!
